exploding ham (fun with the microwave)

Post by psychicoctopus » Thu Jan 20, 2005 2:01 pm

why does ham explode in the microwave oven? half of my sandwich just blew off. and it reminded me of all the fun we used to have by putting things in the microwave that weren't meant to go there. all kinds of stuff.

what's the coolest microwave oven trick you've seen?

I dont know if its true, but someone told me a story about there little brother pretending the microwave was a car wash and put his hot wheels in there, sparks and crap i guess resulted from the metal.

An ex-girlfriend's brother once put one of their cats in the microwave for like 5 seconds and it made one of it's eyes turn a different color, but other than that the cat seemed fine.

those "peeps" marshmallow bunnies that they sell at easter are great for excessive microwaving. Why: because they grown into grotesque, huge mallow bunnies right before your very eyes.

Lightbulbs my friends, lightbulbs. If you're sitting around drunk or high some night and you want some inexpensive entertainment, lightbulbs + microwave = light show. It should keep you enthralled for at least five mintues.

If you take a ceramic coffee cup and fill it a quarter way with water and put a light bulb in it it will light up the bulb, a freind I used to work with showed me that when I showed up to work all sideways on mushrooms. Other than that it was a really scary day for me. But the light bulb sedated me for like 45 seconds or so.

I knew you guys were up to no good.

One time we were on shrooms and we put a foam rubber ball in the microwave. It was shaped like a head and it had a face. When the heat came on, the thing grew to like 4 times its size and we couldn't stop laughing at how fucked up it looked. Come to think of it, it looked a lot like Tiger Vomitt's avatar.

That cat will die of kitty-cancer, sometime next summer.

if you put a can of coke in the microwave it'll explode. (your microwave and coke may vary, I take no responsibility for damages to you microwave) one of my friends did this in a hotel. the microwave door blew open and we got coke all over the place. soo frickin awsome.

Holy crap!!! So that's how you change a cat's eye color!

I sure hope that this wasn't the same cat that was later killed on Maz's lawn.

When i was about fifteen this letter arrived at my house from the school addressed to my mum. I'd been a little bit naughty lately so i tried to steam it open with the kettle, but it just wasn't happening, only made the envelope wet, so i put a bit of water on the seal and put it in the microwave for a minute. I went back in the kitchen when i heard funny noises and there were sparks flying in the microwave. I'd melted some of the inside of the door, turns out there was a paperclip in there. Also turned out that my mum had won a prize in some school raffle and i wasn't in trouble at all. I have no recollection of how i explained the melted door or the paper clip shaped burn on the letter, just that someone from the council came round and replaced the door, apparently they had a policy on damaged or faulty microwaves after concerns that the microwaves could do people harm.

Obviously none of this has anything to do with ham.
